Infinite Campus Parent Portal Instructions

This is a very important step in supporting your child through their academic journey. I highly recommend that all guardians and parents have access to their child's records.


In order to access your child's student records including attendance, grades, class assignments, etc., you will need to create an Infinite Campus Parent Portal.


You must have an email address on record with the school. You also can not have duplicate emails in the system. Each parent listed must have their own separate email account on file to have separate portals.


An example of what NOT to do.

Mom - testfamily@gmail.com

Dad - testfamily@gmail.com


Please provide separate emails for each parent/guardian.

Step 1. Infinite Campus Login Retrieval


Once you click “Step 1. Infinite Campus Login Retrieval”, scroll to the bottom of the page and enter your email address on file. You will be sent your log in information. Once you have that, click on Step 2 below to access your account. Plan on completing this process in one sitting or your information will expire for security reasons.


Step 2. Parent/Guardian Login

If you do not already have an Infinite Campus portal account, or if you have forgotten your username or password, please visit the Infinite Campus information page on our PVUSD website. There are several helpful links to help you: Parent Sign Up, Forgot Your Password, Parent Login, and FAQs.


Please note - PVUSD does not use an ACTIVATION Key. Any reference to an activation key is a generic reference from Infinite Campus and should be ignored. Just click on the Infinite Campus Information Page link above for guidance.
